The gauntlet.

I have taken on a challenge.  Maybe you heard about the Uniform Project (www.theuniformproject.com)?  Well, to put it succinctly…it’s one dress, one cause.  Starting January 1, 2012, I will wear my “uniform”, a little black dress every day for 1 year.  Why?  This will be a great way to grow awareness and hopefully, raise A LOT of money for Voices for Children of Tampa Bay.  If you know me, you know that VFC is not just my charity of choice.  It is my passion.  We have to draw the dirty, little secret of child abuse, abandonment and neglect out of the dark and into the light.  No longer can we stand by and turn a blind eye to these children – children in our community who have no one to look out for them or speak for them.  Well, that’s what Voices for Children does – our sole existence is to help these children.  And I will spend each and every day of 2012 hopefully, bringing awareness and creating some buzz to help these kids.

The gauntlet has been thrown down.  Who wants to help me makes this little black dress – my uniform – unique each and every day?  Are you willing to donate accessories?  Scarves, pins, hats, costume jewelry?  Every day, my husband will take my picture and I’ll post it on a special website and Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/UniformProjectVFC ….like it!).  People will get to rate my outfit, comment and make suggestions….all for a price….hey, this is about raising money, too.
